The hallmark of this text has been the authors' clear, careful, and concise presentation of linear algebra so that students can fully understand how the mathematics works. The text balances theory with examples, applications, and geometric intuition.

- Learning Tools CD-ROM will be automatically packaged free with every new text purchased from Houghton Mifflin.
- Section 3.4, now named "Introduction to Eigenvalues," has been broken into two separate sections to provide more emphasis on the early introduction of eigenvalues. The new Section 3.5, "Applications of Determinants," covers the Adjoint of a Matrix; Cramer's Rule; and the Area, Volume, and Equations of Lines and Planes.
- All real data in exercises and examples have been updated to reflect current statistics and information.
- This edition features more Writing Exercises to reinforce critical-thinking skills and additional multi-part True/False Questions in the end-of-section and chapter review exercise sets to encourage students to think about mathematics from different perspectives.
- Additional exercises involving larger matrices have been added to the exercise sets where appropriate. These exercises will be linked to the data sets found on the web site and the Learning Tools CD-ROM.
- Eduspace is Houghton Mifflin's online learning tool. Powered by Blackboard, Eduspace is a customizable, powerful and interactive platform that provides instructors with text-specific online courses and content. The Larson Elementary Linear Algebra course features algorithmic exercises and test bank content in question pools.
